P*N New This Week: 28th February 2011

Welcome to Platform Nation’s weekly feature where we inform you, the reader, on all the game releases you should be looking out for.

Each week as well as bringing you news about which games are due to hit the shelves in the seven days ahead, the Platform Nation writer will choose their pick of the week.

My pick for this week is:

Beyond Good & Evil HD:

Beyond Good & Evil HD: is an action-adventure video game developed and published by Ubisoft and was originally released in late 2003 for the GameCube, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, and Xbox platforms. The story follows the adventures of Jade, a female investigative reporter and martial artist, who works with a resistance movement to reveal a planet-wide alien conspiracy. Players control Jade and allies, solving puzzles, fighting enemies, and obtaining photographic evidence. This HD release features improved character models, textures, and soundtrack. Achievements and online leaderboards will be also added.

My View: Beyond Good & Evil was a game I played briefly myself but did sit with my wife while she played through the entire story, so I have experienced the game as a spectator and appreciate that it is a classic.  This HD release gives me the chance to play through it myself all over again and still gives me hope that there will be more details on the sequel announced soon.

The full rundown. As well as my pick of the week the following games are due for release:

Xbox 360:


Nintendo Wii:

  • uDraw
  • Zumba Fitness

PlayStation Portable:

  • (no releases this week)

Nintendo DS:


All of these titles are available through the Platform Nation Amazon Storefront. Check it out.

  • I am SO confused about Beyond Good & Evil’s release date. On the Xbox Dashboard it says March 9th, but that would mean nothing would be coming out this week for the House Party promotion, which Microsoft NEVER does.

    But everywhere online says, like you, the 2nd. Believe me, I really really hope it’s this week. Waiting even one more will be torture.

  • Beyond Good and Evil HD has only been officially announced as March 2nd on X-Box 360. Nowhere will Ubisoft tell us anything about whether it’s coming to PS3 at the same time, or when it’s coming. If you have official word on it coming on Mach 2nd than that’s awesome, but please don’t be getting my hopes up for nothing. 🙁
